Here we show you the questions asked to Lionel Messi in his first ever interview
Lionel Messi’s first-ever interview as a Newell’s Old Boys youth player has been uncovered on Reddit. He was just a 13-year-old little boy at that time and was still dreaming of winning the World Cup with Argentina one day.
The interview covers all about his interests like his favourite film, music, food and more. This article is going to tell you what a little boy from Rosario, Argentina liked besides playing football.
According to his old teammates, Messi was kind of a shy guy who wasn’t so familiar with the interviews.
“He was humble,” Sergio Maradona, one of Messi’s young team-mates at Newell’s, told Bleacher Report.
“The idea that he was shy, timid—this is a lie. When he is with his mates, he’s great fun. He’s guarded with the press or people who don’t know him. With his family or his friends, he’s very amusing. I remember him as a funny guy, entertaining, extroverted but also a very respectful person, modest, unassuming. He never had problems with anyone.”
